Re: newsletter

Depends what you mean by ‘newsletter’. If you mean ‘email the contents of an article’ then there’s an old plugin mem_postmaster that can do that, but it doesn’t work in recent Txp versions (I think 4.6 was the last supported version, maybe even 4.5.7).

If not, you could roll your own using com_connect and a suitable glue extension plugin that could link to some third party system. I have ext_mailchimp for example, though it needs updating for the newest MailChimp API.

Failing that, I have a newsletter plugin in development that slots into some new Txp 4.8.x features. But that’s not ready yet and might be some time.

So in short, no not really without some work. And if you do go this route, btw, be very careful about what you collect/store and that you give users the appropriate rights to double opt-in and unsubscribe.
